Klay Thompson will be sidelined the next 7-10 days due to a right ankle sprain, Steve Kerr announced on Tuesday afternoon.
The Warriors' All-Star shooting guard rolled his ankle when driving to the basket with 5:20 remaining in the third quarter of the Warriors' 108-105 win over the Lakers on Monday night.
He exited the game a few minutes later, went to the locker room to have his ankle re-taped, and re-entered with 8:40 remaining in the fourth quarter.
Thompson played the rest of the game, and drilled a 3-pointer that gave the Warriors a 98-95 lead with 4:31 to go.
He finished with a game-high 26 points.
